Sangaku or San Gaku (算額; lit. mathematical tablet) are Japanese geometrical puzzles in Euclidean geometry on wooden tablets created during the Edo period (1603-1867) by members of all social classes. The Dutch Japanologist Isaac Titsingh first introduced sangaku to the West when he returned to Europe in the late 1790s after more than twenty years in the Far East.
